i am a USAF and MN air national
guard veteran living with blindness.
late in my 30’s i was diagnosed
with rod-cone dystrophy.
i continue to create art by building up the surface layer by layer. i use technology and braille labels to help me identify the tubes of paint and mediums in my studio.
sensory memory have enhanced over time and provided to me the ability to engage with greater efficiency both haptic and echoic abilities. i am inspired by nature, music, life encounters, memories and my faith.
it is only in my dreams do the images that i paint come into full view of my imagination.
AND only in my dreams do i process 'how' i will bring the images into frution for others to see and experience. though, i am no longer able to actually 'see' my art, i continue to ask the question of those who can:
'do you see what i feel?'
i want my art to offer hope and possibilities. as audrey hepburn once quoted, "the words, 'i'm possible' are in the words impossible."
